A Message from Heads Apart Group’s CEO & Founder Gary Bembridge:

I began my online advertising career in 1996 with the Dun & Bradstreet Reuben Donnelley Online Yellow Pages and hold the lofty distinction of closing and launching some of the very first Internet ads.

Over the past 18 years, I have led a distinguished career in the online advertising industry, serving in senior sales roles across Strategic Sales, Senior Executive Sales Leadership, Business Development and Strategic Sales Consultation while growing an estimated $700MM in revenue.  I have led superior performing sales teams from startups to mature environments at companies such as Dun & Bradstreet, Microsoft, Medio Systems, CBS Digital, ad pepper, CPX Interactive and built lasting relationships with major brands and Top 50 Interactive Agencies across North America.  I have recruited and mentored many of the current sales leaders who are littered across the Online Advertising landscape today.

In 2008, I founded Heads Apart as a boutique consultancy firm acting as a sparring partner to International early stage companies seeking to make a splash in the US digital market.  Today, Heads Apart Group has energized into a specialty talent acquisition and consulting firm with clients globally.

We offer retained Talent Acquisition, Executive Search and Strategic Sales Consultation to our clients in Online Advertising, with a focus on digital media sales.  We understand the challenges: Hiring managers spend weeks sourcing hundreds of resumes to procure a small pool of candidates.  Many recruiters are industry outsiders who are talented but miss many of the nuanced Functional and Core Competency skill sets that it takes to compete and drive revenue in the online advertising ecosystem today.  Hiring managers know – when you secure the best performing candidates, it’s because you’ve looked beyond just the resume.  Hiring managers also know – when you simply hire a resume, you have likely just hired a widget for your sales org.

With over 18 years of embedded online advertising relationships, we are industry Insiders with a significant pipeline that can now be leveraged as yours.  Heads Apart Group will help you secure the best candidates quickly.  We conduct business confidentially and offer the highest level of trust and integrity to our clients, which allow you peace of mind to completely focus on driving revenue.
